Cannes Is Coming! Let's Get Excited By Remembering The Best Dresses Ever

If there's one thing you can guarantee from the Cannes Film Festival, it's an abundance of beautiful photos of beautiful people in beautiful dresses so you can bet your bottom dollar we're excited. It's like watching the Oscars red carpet for two whole weeks.

The 2013 frockathon kicks off on Wednesday 15th and we'll be bringing you daily updates from the South of France right here on Grazia Daily. Nicole Kidman has bagged the prestigious job as juror on this year's judging panel so we can expect an array of stunners from the Hollywood heavyweight and Audrey Tatou has taken on the role of Mistress of Ceremonies during the cinematic extravaganza so she's bound to have packed a few Chanel frocks. But who else will be putting in their bid for best dresser?

The Best Ever Cannes Dresses

For starters, Baz Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby' is opening this year's event which is sure to start the glitzy shenanigans in style with the likes of Carey Mulligan and Leonardo DiCaprio in tow. The much-anticipated film 'The Bling Ring' will be showing at the film festival which means there's a good chance Emma Watson will be cracking out one or two Burberry beauties. 'Blood Ties' has an astounding cast that includes Marion Cotillard, Zoe Saldana and Mila Kunis who always know how to bring the style swishes. And on the besuited man front, 'Only God Forgives' is on the billing so cross those fingers for a dapper Ryan Gosling appearance.

Plus, if anyone can pull in the fashion heavyweights, it's Carine Roitfeld. The fashionable Frenchy will be hosting a fabulous fashion show at the amFAR gala for the second year running with the help of none other than Naomi Campbell. The theme is gold and the catwalk looks will be dedicated to Elizabeth Taylor so we can expect Cleopatra-tastic delights, lots of leopard print and of course tons and tons of bling. Will catwalker du jour Cara Delevingne put in an appearance? Here's hoping!

Incase this hasn't got you as excited as us, we've trawled through the picture archives to bring you some of the best dresses that have EVER graced the Cannes red carpet. So take a look through the gallery above and get the fun begin!
